2. What data do we need from you for the use of our websites? What data is collected and stored during use?

Personal information is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ("data subject"), such as your name, address, telephone number, date of birth, bank details and IP address.

In principle, we collect and use personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained due to practical reasons and when the processing of the data is permitted by law.


Usage data

When using our websites, the following data are recorded, provided that the storage serves exclusively internal system-related and statistical purposes - so-called usage data:

1. Information about the browser type and version used
2. Operating system of the user
3. Internet service provider of the user
4. IP address of the user
5. Date and time of access
6. Websites from which the system of the user reaches our website
7. Websites accessed by the user’s system through our website

The log files contain IP addresses or other data that allow an association to a user. This could be the case, for example, if the link to the website from which the user accesses the website or the link to the website to which the user is switching contain personal data.

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. A storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place.

Storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. In this context no data is analysed for marketing purposes.

For these purposes, the processing of data is of mutual legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. In no case collected data are used for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you.

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. In case of data collection for the provision of the website, this will happen once the respective session is completed.

In case of storing the data in log files, this is will happen after no more than seven days. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or altered, so that the client who retrieved the website can no longer be identified.

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is imperative for the operation of the website. Consequently, the user cannot raise objections.

In addition, we use cookies, as well as analysis services, when you visit our website. Further explanation can be found under point 5 of this privacy policy.
